You can't force love.

“Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.” Psalms 17:8, NIV.

When it comes to love, you want the kind that comes naturally, not love that is forced. Maybe there’s someone in your life that you love a great deal, but they don’t feel the same way you do and it makes you want to change in order to keep them interested.

The thoughts in your mind may say, “I can make them love me. I can change and become whatever they want me to be. I can change careers, change my hair, get plastic surgery, have their child, leave everything I know and change the way I behave. They will love me; I just have to…” You shouldn’t have to change yourself to get love. If God loves you just how you are, anyone He sends your way will also love you just how you are.

At the heart of real love is acceptance. Anything you have to change to get, you will have to constantly change in order to keep. Love is most beautiful when it is unforced and not manipulated. Let love happen by God’s divine orchestration. Whatever He sends your way He will give you the grace and wisdom to handle. You may not be the apple of someone’s eye just yet, but you are surely the apple of God’s eye. You may not have a David Jonathan kind of friendship just yet, but you have one with God. He loves you in every state and in every season. He took off His priestly garments and wrapped you in robes of righteousness. You will never be able to reach the bottom of God’s love for you!

Until someone can love you even remotely close to that kind of love, honey they don’t deserve you.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking to my heart. I know You love me. Help me know it in a deeper way. Deal with the deeper fears in me and shine your light on every false view I have of myself. I deserve real love and I trust You. In Jesus Name, Amen.

  4. Everything that happened to me that was good God did it
    I said everything that happened to me that was good the Master did it
    When the Lord is in it just think when it’s ordained by the Lord Jesus Christ amen!

  5. Father,thank you for this msg. I was just googling this morning about this same issue and God has handed me His Mind about it. Glory to God! Now I pray for the Grace to obediently let go of who isn’t meant for me and Grace to receive who He sends to me.

  6. Amen to this beautiful word!! Sometimes we settle for someone who manipulates and changes us to their image. The only image we should worry about is the Lords. And with time and persistence and patience the right man/woman will come your way. It took me 5 years to realize that my last relationship was the NOT THE ONE!!!! YOU should NEVER have to change who you are and conform to what they want. Sisters that is not love!!! May the women/men who are in relationships with people like this realize their worth in God.

  7. Holding on does more damage. Glory to God for the unconditional love. God knows who to send your way. God I want all of you and none of me. Amen
